This information would be very helpful in our work as transitional care nurses in the ennington service area. We find that physicians do not have the time to pore through information but need assistance to have critical information provided to them by the supporting care team. We spend too much time trying to collect all of this data ourselves which is probably true in each silo of care. If there was a central place to log in the data and share, that wouldbe a huge time saver so we could spend more time working directly with the patients and families.

I suggest adding questions re: the client’s consent for the transfer of info—


where release can be found?

date of release b/c some/ maybe most?

releases expire automatically one year after being signed…

scope of the release – esp. what providers and info is covered by the release – any specific exclusions?

And – there might  be more than one release at play- typically each provider  has their own….
